After recording The Drone U / DroneDJ news show today, Paul Aitken and I were talking about the upcoming NAB 2019 and how some people were hoping for a Phantom 5 launch at the event in Las Vegas. To my surprise, Paul told me that DJI wasn’t even on the list of exhibitors this year, even though the company has had a booth in previous years. Time to get some clarification. I contacted DJI to find out about DJI’s absence. Adam Lisberg, Corporate Communications Director for DJI North America, confirmed that indeed, DJI will not be at NAB 2019 as the company is exploring other avenues. So, with that, any hope of a Phantom 5 launch at the event evaporates. Sorry guys.
